In November it’s great to find a good restaurant open in the evening. Had the set menu of €17.50 each. Mind out, the house wine is €20! The food was excellent, all served with a smile. Even though we our native tongue is English we...More

This restaurant provided rather better quality food than we were expecting. The poulet basque was very acceptable and the veal/serrano ham/ cheese was very good indeed. Service was efficient and friendly. The cost was low.

We visited this restaurant mainly for its fresh and copious salades composées but they also has had fairly decent pizzas (albeit with the usual French combination of emmental and mozzarella instead of just the latter). Desserts were also pretty good. So I would treat this...More

Terrible pizzas - expensive sodas (3,80 EUR for 25cl) - and WORST coffee ever - didn't even drink it after tasting. Such a pity with the great location!

Wifey insisted on grilled sardines. Three restaurants that had them on the menu but each said "Sorry". Here they had them. Now that would not draw me to the restaurant as there is more to life than grilled sardines...but how about house wine by the...More

24.50 euro menu - All very tasty and good size portions. Prawn starter and King Prawn main really good. Serrano ham starter was huge! We would certainly go again based on this. Certainly much better than many 'tourist spot' restaurants we have been to.

This wasn't my first choice, or even my second. First was closed, second was a good walk away and it was raining! I chose the 24.50Euro meal. Chipirons were OK, the Dorade was OK, rice was dry. Gateau Basque was OK. No didasters, but I...More
